“The Firm” is hiring! NBC is lining up more names to flesh out its upcoming TV adaptation of the John Grisham best-selling novel.
The network announced Tuesday that actors Juliette Lewis (“Natural Born Killers,” “Cape Fear”) and Callum Keith Rennie (“The Killing,” “Californication”) have signed on to costar in the legal drama.
Lewis will play Tammy, “Mitch’s feisty, sexy receptionist, whose work life is made all the more tumultuous by her on-again, off-again relationship with Mitch’s brother, Ray,” according to the release. Rennie takes on the role of Ray McDeere, Mitch’s “charming yet volatile older brother whose work as an investigator in Mitch’s office is uniquely informed by his past stretch in prison for manslaughter.”
Lewis and Rennie join previously announced leading man Josh Lucas, who stars as attorney Mitchell McDeere (the role originated by Tom Cruise in the film version).
Production on the series begins this August in Toronto.
